Been gone for a while and my efforts have been spotty since the new job BUT I have 57 miles to add since August and that means we (I'm?) 122 - 57 miles = 65 miles ooutside of Birmingham Alabama. Hope you rejoin our walk efforts.

ok; pre Sturgis rally and Rally week I got in a total of 33 miles. So 155 - 33 = 122 miles to Birmingham Ala.
I'm headed to Michigan (mom's 90 this August and sharp as a tack) so i will probably have low mileage again but Hey, just keep strokin, right???

Hope to hear from you all when I get back to Spark.
New school year, new job, less stress. Hoping for 10% body weight loss this year. emoticon

This week i got in 32 miles. Had time with my daughter from Wyo. So 187 - 32 = 155 miles to Birmingham.

We are coming up on Rally so for about 2 weeks I think I'm going to show low mileage. Sure could use some help.

OK week 28 I got in 27.7 miles.

At last entry, we were 5 miles to Memphis, so now we are 22 miles beyond Memphis. I don't know where you want to head toward next but if needed, I'll check a map and pick a target city. Is everyone ok out there??? emoticon

Birmingham, Alabama is about 237 miles from Memphis; is that a suitable location?? If so, 237-22= 215 miles to go.

31 miles - 26 = 5 miles to Memphis.

Someone has put in 5 miles this past week I'm sure!

Kim has lived in Beulah and Cheyenne but recently bought her home in Wheatland. In the 20 years I've been in western SD, I find Wyoming "home sweet home" and have traveled just about every mile of her. Week 26 I got in 12 miles (swimming).

43 - 12= 31 miles to go.

By the way, these fires are all around. Stay safe.

I grew up in Wyoming! I was born there too.
Where are you going?

Sorry I haven't been helping with the walk. I have been expending my energies on a garden/construction project and have not been tracking my steps or my time.
You all keep up the good work! I hope some of the new members join in.
You will be in Memphis in no time.

You are so right TRESA7- I kind of have to make myself sit down and input because it IS too hard to track over a long period of time. BUT HEY!!! Congrats on working it for the past six weeks!!!! Even if you didn't get a chance to write it all down, your BODY still KNOWS you DID IT! Thats what really counts.

Week 24 (for me) I got in 20 miles at the center. That means we are 92 - 20 = 72 miles from our next stop. emoticon

Hello, everybody! I'm sorry I haven't checked in for such a long time. I was going to go back and figure up ALL of my mileage, but I'm afraid that six weeks is too much for one sitting. I did use the Step Conversion Chart and came up with 11.44 miles for 4/30-5/12. Since we're rounding numbers, that's ELEVEN miles I can add to our current total.

103 - 11 = 92 miles to go

Back from "house searching" trip to Nevada. Looks like I'm staying in South Dakota for an unspecified period of time. Oh well, Back to the community center -(I actually missed it) and I got in 32 miles this week. (Even bought myself a new pair of jeans (YAY!).

Anyway 135 - 32 = 103 miles to go.

WHERE ARE ALL OF OUR OTHER WALKERS????? COME ON GUYS! YOU CAN HELP WITH THIS!!! ESPECIALLY YOU NEWBIES, WE"RE WALKING ACROSS AMERICA- HOW COOL IS THAT???? emoticon

week 21 I got in 29 miles. That means we are 142 miles from Memphis.

Next week will be very busy and I don't expect I'll have access to the community center as much so I'll dig up the conversion chart. Thanks so much for providing it.

I had a great time visiting my son in Milwaukee. He lives downtown where there are so many great places just in walking distance. The weather was great. I walked 11 miles on two days and nearly that much on the others.

We flew kites in the lakefront park, in the vicinity of that famous art museum they have there. (We visited the museum last visit when it was raining. This time the weather was just too nice.)

For the long weekend I have 39 miles.

171 to Memphis.

Now that we are back on the ranch my dogs aren't walking me anymore. I will have to go back to step conversion miles instead of pedometer miles.
This week I:
shoveled manure for two hours = moderate gardening = 7 miles
moved hay bales = 20 min weight lifting = 1 mile
Cleaned house = 2 miles
That's 10 miles plus I have 5 pedometer miles leftover.

244 - 15 = 229

I see Memphis is just 270 some miles down the road.

Good going Rain!!!!! Week 18 and I put in 26 miles.

If only I had weighed myself in August I would know how much fat I've lost- but unfortunately my hatred of the scale prevented my doing what needed to be done. Lots of physical changes but no solid number of pounds. I don't care on some levels but just the same I wish I knew. Oh well. Hang in there guys!

I think rounding is the way to go. Keeps things simple. So "T" your 3 miles takes us to 95 miles. Last two weeks combined I have put in 45 miles between walking and biking. I thought I better update before things get to out of hand. (I wrote my letter of resignation- now that's a big step after 13 years!!) Anyway, 95 - 45 = 50 miles go. emoticon

Looks like it is time to repost this link for the new members:

www.takesteps.univerahealthcare.com/
st
epChartPop.jsp

It is a chart we were using to convert exercise into miles.

It looks like this is what you used to get your steps Tresa.

I think we had agreed that 2000 steps equaled one mile.

Your 5,481 steps equals 2 and 3/4 miles.

Good Job!! emoticon

As I scrolled back to find this link I saw that it was Suz that suggested that we round off miles. (miss her) Perhaps it is time to revisit that decision. How do our current walkers feel about rounding off?

Short answer for Tresa: You have either 2.75 or 3 miles.
Good Job!! emoticon

I haven't checked in since I first joined this team. I don't know how many steps are in a mile or how to convert strength training, but I did figure out the following activities for the last week:

Elliptical Trainer -- 7 min. = 1,421 steps
Walking -- 20 min. = 2,000 steps
Tai Chi -- 45 min. X 2 classes = 720 steps
Grocery shopping -- 20 min. - 1,340 steps

That's a total of 5,481 steps!! Where does that put us?

Its been 2 weeks since I checked in and my pedometer only remembers 7 days.
OOps.
I walked 8 miles last Friday - at least I got back before those miles expired.
I have an additional 15 miles spread out over the rest of the week.
Whee! total 23

140 - 23 = 117 miles to Branson

Anyone else feel all those tornadoes last weekend
I know I did.
Maybe we should all walk with Red Sparkly shoes on for awhile.

Was it Ladybug (gosh I miss her)?

The house has been undergoing a remodel this past month. OMG I think it's beautiful-but moving furniture!!!!!! YUK. Anyway, I failed to enter - last week I got 20 miles in so - we made it to Kansas City (the steaks and chicken were wonderful) and I have 13 miles more to add in.

Branson is 211 miles and I hear it has quite the tourist attractions. We can watch a show or two. So if we head in that southerly direction, we have 198 miles to go.

It has been a couple of weeks since I checked in.
I have 42 miles accumulated.
So here we are 7 miles out of Kansas City Kansas - in the lovely and plush suburbs.
It is lovely, green, warm and humid.
It is almost like we are in Florida already.
Whoever comes in with those next 7 miles - it is your honor to pick our next destination.

49 - 42 = 07 miles

Well, here we are in downtown FUNK and lo and behold we walk right on out and keep going another 29 miles. Week seven I put in 34 miles. 5 took us to FUNK and now we are going to "Kansas City, Kansas City here I come" 334 - 29 = 305 miles. I WANT BBQ!!!

Wow that puts us practically in the heart of Funk.
The next walker to post will surely pass right through.
This google search is a nice photo montage of what we might see there.

It looks like we can hit all big cities from here on.
For the next stop I choose the one where I now reside:
Kansas City, Kansas.

I chose to take the back roads.

If that's alright with all of you.

"All of you" - that has a nice ring to it. Thanks TishToes for getting us this far - and thanks everyone else for joining in.

I collected 15 miles on my pedometer this week - it would have been more if I could just remember to take it with me every time
5 of those miles were on Monday. I knew it was going to be the last of the freakishly warm days for awhile so I took advantage. emoticon

58 - 15 = 43 to the Funk stop

Hi Everyone,

I'm really proud of myself for finding this topic. I've been home sick emoticon this week, but I did 4 miles last weekend.

62 - 4 = 58

After 3 days in hospital, iv's, ultrasound, bloodwork and xrays- they don't know. maybe a poison or "sick" animal injestion (deer poop would be most probable)- but she is back in true form again and boy are we watching her when she's outside!!

Week 5 saw 35 miles.

136 - 35 + 101 miles to Funk

Ok. 24 days since I cashed in miles.
Between Holiday visits and Cold weather I have not been getting even two miles per day - but I know I have been doing at least 1 per day (average)

188-24 = 164
We are in Nebraska now.
Have to check the map to see where...... emoticon
